A star-studded cast will be competing in the VALORANT showmatch. Jo "CoreJJ" Yong-In, the starting Support for Team Liquid's League of Legends Championship Series franchise, tops the list of organizational members who will be participating. Rafael "Rakin" Knittel, Lucas "Mendo" Håkansson, and Brandon “Saintvicious” DiMarco are just a few of the TL streamers also participating in the event.
